Cold Waves And Minimal Electronics Vol 1.


Hot on the heels of Stones Throw’s excellent Minimal Wave Tapes compilation comes Cold Waves & Minimal Electronics Vol.1, a similarly essential and slightly more dancefloor-oriented collection from Angular Recordings (home to These New Puritans, Wetdog et al). Compiled over the course of two years by Angular’s Joe Daniel and Pieter Schoolwerth (founder of New York’s Wierd Records), it came out a couple of months ago and has been langishing in my inbox since till I got round to downloading it. It's a rather tasty collection of edgy electronica and features a bunch of blazing tracks from the likes of Absolute Body Control, Linear Movement, Ausgang Verboten and the other big hitters of this scene.

1. Absolute Body Control * Figures
2. Nine Circles * Twinkling Stars
3. Linear Movement * Night in June
4. Opera Multi Steel * Ills S’eloigent
5. Bal Paré * Palais d’Amour
6. Eleven Pond * Watching Trees
7. The Vyllies * Babylon
8. End of Data * Dans Votre Monde
9. The Actor * Lights
10. Ausgang Verboten * Consumer
11. Jeunesse d’Ivoire * A Gift of Tears
12. OTO * Anyway
13. Ruth * Polaroïd/Roman/Photo
14. Stereo * Somewhere in the Night
15. The Neon Judgement * The Fashion Party
16. Land of Giants * Cannibal Dolls
17. Days of Sorrow * Travel
